Creating Mobile Apps with Eclipse RAP and Tabris

Session Type: 
Sponsored Workshop [90 minutes]
Speakers

Smartphones and Tablets have become ubiquitous. But, writing an application targeted for multiple devices is still a nightmare of platforms and programming languages. Several years ago a similar problem was solved by Eclipse RAP when it enabled developers to write desktop and web applications using the same code base. Wouldn’t it be great to use the same code for native mobile apps, too?

Porting SWT for GTK+ 3 - What, Why and How

Session Type: 
Standard Talk [25 minutes]
Speakers

On UNIX/Linux based platforms, SWT (Standard Widget Toolkit) currently supports the GTK+ 2.x

UI testing with Jubula - wacky widgets

Session Type: 
Standard Talk [25 minutes]
Speakers

Standard widgets and usage concepts are great. They are known by users, respond in expected ways, and are generally testable out-of-the-box with UI automation tools like Jubula.

Apparently though, standard widgets are boring, that table-in-a-combo-box-with-a-tree-in-it is the new black. Joking aside, the temptation (or necessity) to stray from the standard path will happen to all of us at one time or another. Good examples for that can e.g. be found in the Nebula project.
